Dominique, the baby born with four legs and two spines who underwent surgery in March, has returned to her family in Côte d’Ivoire.
The hospital released a video Wednesday of the April 20 reunion of Dominique and her parents and three sisters at Abidjan International Airport. In it, Dominique’s parents thanked the American doctors and charity who helped their daughter.
11-month old Dominique returned to her parents after spending more than two months in Chicago.
She was born with the remnants of a conjoined twin still attached to her neck and back.
It took a team of five surgeons at Advocate Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge to remove the mass.
Doctors say they expect Dominique to make a full recovery.
